Gloucester's Dave Lewis makes his first England Under 20 start against Scotland at the IRB Toshiba Junior World Championship in Tokyo tomorrow (Tuesday) alongside three club team mates including Henry Trinder (pictured).
The scrum half won his first cap off the bench when coach Mark Mapletoft's side opened the tournament with a 43-0 victory over hosts Japan last Thursday.
Now he takes over from Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) as England freshen up their side with nine changes of personnel.
Into the backline come Lewis and his Gloucester teammates Henry Trinder and Charlie Sharples, with Will Hurrell (Leicester Tigers) on the wing and Rob Miller (Newcastle Falcons) at fly half.
Up front there are first starts for props Ben Moon (Exeter Chiefs) and Shaun Knight (Gloucester), lock Graham Kitchener (Worcester Warriors) and blindside flanker Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints).
Centre Luke Eves continues as captain while Leeds Carnegie flanker Calum Clark sits out a second game. Prop Joe Marler (Harlequins) starts a two-match suspension following his sending off in the opening match.
England beat Scotland 20-6 at the end of this year's RBS U20 Six Nations but the side is radically different this time round.
Only five of the team that started against the Scots that night at Worcester reappear at the Prince Chichibu Stadium: fly half Miller, try-scorer Trinder, captain Eves, prop Moon and No.8 Chris York.
